Bourbon barrel-aged Imperial Porter

Find Beer

Barrel Aged Hugene is a humongous Imperial Porter aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels and brewed using the first runnings of wort from a huge mash yielding the darkest and highest concentration of fermentable sugars. A host of specialty malts such as Munich, Caramunich and CaraAroma lend an initial caramel flavor and sweetness upfront that slowly melts away right before the tidal wave of Chocolate malt character crashes over you. A smooth silky mouthfeel from the residual malt sugars masks the high ABV% and yields remarkably drinkable ale. Warrior hops added at the beginning of the boil contribute a light balanced bitterness and a pinch of Centennial in the whirlpool lends a faint citrus zest aroma which lurks beneath the waves of dark chocolate. This is a very complex beer that is going to develop aromas of dark fruit and cocoa bean.
